The Pet Vet says: Cutting cat's nails is a two-person job

by Dr. Heidi Strand

Q. We have a 6-year-old cat who HATES having her nails cut. Recently, the place that cuts her nails told us they are going out of business. All the vets won't touch her as she is aggressive and several have suggested putting her under anesthesia in order to cut her nails. To me, this is terrible to do every month. Someone told me to purchase a spray called pheromone (?) and to spray it on a towel, then put the towel in her cage and then put the cat in and she will relax and I can take her to have her nails cut. Can you provide any information on this and if it is used frequently?
